should be interesting.
I was just visiting my brother at Easter, and we were listening to some old NE., when he reminded me about how I used to have a crush on Ronnie Devoe . It's funny, the things that younger siblings remember that we forget about.

Thumbs up The original modern day boy band...

It could get pretty ugly.

I hope its not leading up to another reunion.

Will Bobby Brown be the villian; will he get to respond?

This could be hilarious.

I'd love to hear Bobby's POV...

BTW--those boys have come a long way. They looked pretty rough during the
early years.

Kiwifan, first boy band indeed! And I hope they talk to Maurice Starr about New Kids on the Block.

Ronnie's cute but my crush was on Ralph.

That topic has come up in the past when I've discussed New Edition and I don’t think Maurice Starr did anything wrong. The success of NKOTB exposed the injustice of the Top 40 charts (back in the late 80’s/early 90’s) but Maurice Starr was just being savvy and it paid off for him.

I don't know. We'll have to wait for Behind The Music.

N'Sync and The Backstreet Boys Were Not the First Boy Bands!

N'Sync and The Backstreet Boys Were Not the First Boy Bands!
Tuesday April 26, 1:11 pm ET
- VH1 Emmy-Nominated Series 'Behind The Music' Puts the Spotlight on R&B Supergroup New Edition in Its Latest Installment Premiering April 28 at 10pm*Original interviews from Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, Johnny Gill and Ricky Bell


They were the original boy band. But while New Edition was paving the way for some of the biggest bands of the past twenty years, they were plagued by bad business deals, internal strife, and a frustrating struggle for respect.

In this latest installment of VH1's acclaimed original series, "Behind The Music: New Edition," Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant sit down for our cameras and share their story of how their undeniable talent lifted them out of the projects and into the hearts of countless teenage girls. Premiering on Thursday, April 28 at 10:00 PM ET*, VH1's "Behind The Music: New Edition" features rare and never-before-seen archival video, film and concert clips and songs, plus exclusive interviews with the artists, their friends and colleagues.

VH1's "Behind the Music: New Edition" begins in the late 1970's in the Roxbury district in Boston, one of the most impoverished and crime-ridden areas in the city when five friends began singing and dancing together as a way to escape the turmoil that surrounded them. They named themselves New Edition and after gaining some local notoriety, attracted the attention of Maurice Starr, a local record producer (and later founder of New Kids on the Block) who was looking for the "next" Jackson Five. Under Starr's guidance, New Edition recorded and released their first single, a perfect pop confection called Candy Girl. The single and subsequent album exploded, sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and sent the boys on a seemingly endless tour around the country. Yet, for all of their hard work, the boys came home to Roxbury -- still broke and living in the projects.

Determined to succeed, New Edition split with Starr, continued to tour the world, and churn out top ten hits like Cool It Now and Mr. Telephone Man. History would repeat itself when they discovered that they had once again signed a record deal that had left them all in debt.

"Behind The Music: New Edition," features exclusive interviews with Bobby, Ralph, Mike, Johnny and Ricky, who candidly discuss how their issues, financial struggles, and inflated egos plagued the group.

LIFE AFTER BOBBY BROWN: "I think that it was a life decision that I wish we didn't make. Because, you know, we didn't have to do that ... and that day let me know how far away we was in Hollywood and how far away we were from Boston." (Michael Bivins)

"When I hear certain things, about Bobby hitting Whitney, or him being, being arrested for this or that, it's like, he's still my friend, you know. I just kind of like pray for him, like I hope everything is alright." (Ricky Bell)

BOBBY ON BOBBY: "I was really high on that tour. I don't know how you all put up with me, I really don't. I don't know how they put up with me. Um, I thank 'em though, I thank you an awful lot." (Bobby Brown)

"Everything was going perfect, man. But I was missing something. I was missing them. More than they know." (Bobby Brown)

GETTING PAID: "Our managers came and we were like, alright, where's that money at? And they showed up with $1.87. We had $1.87 in our bank account for all that blood, sweat and tears." (Michael Bivins)

EGO STRUGGLES: "After shows I'd be isolated in a room by myself. Literally, almost in tears. Having to call my mother. Because I couldn't understand why the fellas was mad at me. It got to a point where it got really out of hand." (Ralph Tresvant)

THE ARRIVAL OF JOHNNY GILL: "There was a huge explosion, I mean, it was, I mean, it got real ugly. Um, Ralph was like 'I didn't want' him, I didn't bring him in here. And I'm not trying to split up my money with, you know, five ways again." (Johnny Gill)

I agree, he did nothing wrong, as a businessman...

...my gripe is just the way we (as a culture) will shamelessly white wash our pop culture.

I work in the music industry and you have no idea how much credit people try to give the Backstreet Boys (full disclosure, I've had a few great industry Christmas Parties thanks to "Britney and Co." at Zomba/Jive so I don't hate the "suits" just the Spin they put on recent history).

These same people think they're deep if they trump the Backstreet Boys with New Kids On The Block.

And then when I throw New Edition at them, they're all "well that's totally different."

I just smile and say, "What's the difference between N.E. and NKOTB?"

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

"I don't know that I changed all that much. They just found somebody worse." - Aging tennis bad boy Jimmy Connors, referring to John McEnroe, in 1984.

There can never be too many "Sister Slams!"

I’ve had the same conversation! Not only New Edition but I’ll add The Jacksons (or the Jackson 5, take your pick) but some music fans don’t see the trail that was blazed for Lou Pearlman’s groups.

I’ve never heard it put that way “white wash our pop culture” but that’s an accurate assessment. Look at Puffy’s (now defunct) girl group Dream.

Thumbs up Candy Girl still sounds great...

Watching it, Bobby doesn't look long for this world.

Boy oh Boy if this Special doesn't scream...

"Industry rule number four thousand and eighty, record company people are shady.
So kids watch your back 'cause I think they smoke crack, I don't doubt it. Look at how they act." - A Tribe Called Quest

Bobby was admirably straight forward about himself.

I feel sorry for those kids; everybody ripped them off.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...
